Everyone knows Scooby Doo, I sure do. I've been a lifelong fan myself, it's one of if not my longest and strongest special interest.
Scooby Doo Where Are You? Originally ran in 1969, and was a smash hit.. But did you know it had gone through many revisions before we got the product we know today?
The titlecard for the first ever episode

Such as, the original working title was "Who's S-s-scared?" and was a bit more serious in tone. The direction was quite obviously changed to be much more lighthearted, but I suppose you could say that original scary, and serious tone did make a comeback all those years later with more serious narratives like "Mystery Incorporated."
The gang initially in the development phase, was to be a rock band that traveled around solving mysteries, but was scrapped due to fears it was way too similar to the Archie Comics. Though you can find remnants of this version of the gang! Such as "Haunted House Hang-Up" where the gang are travelling to a music festival, you can see Shaggy and Scooby playing instruments in the back of the van. Though I think the final iteration we got is the best outcome. After all Scooby originally was to be named "Too Much". Now that... Doesn't really scratch the itch that "Scooby Doo" does. And you might ask, where did the name come from?

[Quoted from the Scooby Doo fandom wiki] "The name "Scooby-Doo" supposedly comes from the last line of the Frank Sinatra song "Strangers In The Night", which CBS' children's programming executive, Fred Silverman, took. However, writer Mark Evanier believes that the name may have come from Randy and the Rainbow's "Denise", where as the "Dooby" part came from the former. Hanna-Barbera also had an entirely different dog named "Scooby" in their archives from the early 1960's."[End quote]

Regardless, I'm glad it was changed. It probably would've been an okay name, but imagining the show without the iconic name of "Scooby Doo" is like mashed potatoes without gravy!

Movies & Memorabilia

So my top favorite movies from the franchise have to be Camp Scare, Cyber Chase, Pirates Ahoy!, Abracadabra-Doo, and Legend of the Phantosaur. Camp Scare is my most favorite, it just has a great setting & good villains.
My only complaints are the fact the Spectre of Shadow Canyon felt INCREDIBLY rushed. Like she only got one appearance.. It felt like they needed to squeeze in a proper monster for the place but ran out of time to let her be fleshed out.

Spectre of Shadow Canyon attacks Velma.
Which is a shame, her design is EASILY THE SCARIEST OF THE FILM LIKE HOLY SHIT. The Woodsman & The Fishman are both equally spooky in their own rights, and the fact The Woodsman is kind of a constant looming threat is scary. Like he isn't ALWAYS present but there's the fact that he could strike again at any moment. And he does. Eventually when the dam for Big Moose Lake is broken, and the town underwater in the lake is revealed, we see The Woodsman again, attacking the gang.

So you probably also saw me include "Legend of the Phantosaur" and thought "that movie sounds dumb as hell/that is a very goofy title, how can it be apart of your top favorites??" And I'll tell you. It fucking slaps. It's a great movie, and a lot of the fandom agrees! It's a fresh feeling movie without going a-wall and mischaracterizing the gang. So the synposis is Shaggy discovers he suffers from "a disorder that causes him to irrationally overreact to frightening stimuli." Aka imo, just anxiety lol. They don't CALL it anxiety but you know. Anyways! Shaggy rightfully is afraid he cannot solve mysteries with the gang anymore, so Fred, Daphne, Velma & Scooby all plan to take Shaggy to a desert spa for some no mystery relaxation. He's their friend after all! There they meet the spa owner & hypnotherapist, Mr. Hubley. With his help, Shaggy undergoes hypnotherapy to switch between his normal cowardly self.... And a fearless, yet confident persona.

The caveat however, is that Mr. Hubley forgot the trigger word, and the rest of the gang are clueless to it as well! We the audience know it, the word being "Bad." So, what's the mystery then?? This IS a Scooby movie after all... Well, the gang meet some paleontologists, and they soon find out a "ghost dinosaur" is terrorizing the town. This fearful encounter causes Shaggy to enter a panicked state, and thus Mr. Hubley suggests the hynpotherapy I mentioned prior.

I won't spoil the movie's plot further, as it genuinely is a good watch, and it gives some good laughs too!

This is my current collection! It's not everything sadly, as I cannot find my other laying Scooby plush, the one pictured there is a plush that actually has a voicebox! If you press a button in his ear he says some cute phrases. My uncle gave it to me when I was young.

Groovy Grub & Bark-Tastic Baked Goods

Scooby Snax

Dry Ingredients

2 Cups flour
1 Cup Quakers dry oatmeal
1/2 Cup cocoa
1/2 Cup sugar

Wet Ingredients

1/4 Pound (1 Stick) of butter
2 Eggs
1 Tablespoon vanilla
1 Tablespoon walnut extract
Optional: 1 Oz. Of finely ground "herbal medicine" (It's just weed my dudes. These recipes were found on old Scooby fan sites, hence the reluctance to call it by name.)


Be sure to let your butter sit out to soften an hour or so beforehand, otherwise it'll be hell to mix with.

Preheat your oven to 350' Degrees farenheit. While it preheats, combine your wet & dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. If they aren't well combined after 5 minutes of stirring, add a splash of milk to help combine remaining ingredients.
(Optional step)
Roll your dough into balls of desired size, placing them on a sheet/plate and pressing down gently. Put in fridge to chill so they retain a more "desirable" flat appearance.

Place your chilled (or not chilled) dough on a lightly greased cookie sheet, making sure to spread them evenly to prevent them from baking together. Bake for 8-12 Minutes. If you prefer a softer, chewier cookie, bake for around the minimum time, or for a much more crisp cookie, bake longer.

Daphne's Puppy Paws

Dry Ingredients

1/2 Cup granulated sugar
1 & 1/4 Cup all-purpose flour
1/2 Teaspoon baking powder
1/2 Teaspoon salt
3 Teaspoons chopped nuts
3 Teaspoons powdered sugar

Wet Ingredients

1/4 Cup butter OR margerine, softened
2 Teaspoons shortening
1 Egg
1 Teaspoon vanilla
3 Teaspoons of raspberry jam


In a mixing bowl, beat your granulated sugar, butter, shortening, egg, and vanilla together. Stir in flour, baking powder & salt slowly making sure to mix until smooth.
Cover, and refridgerate 1 hour.

Preheat your oven to 400' Degrees farenheit.
Sprinkle some flour onto the surface where you will be making the cookies as well as your rolling pin. Grease a set aside cookie sheet with some shortening, so your cookies will not stick to the sheet.

Roll your cookie dough into a 12" In. Square. Once it has been rolled out, cut the dough into 3" In. Squares. Spread about 1/2 a teaspoon of jam down the center of the 3" In. Squares. Pepper the jammed portion of the cookies with nuts.
Take one edge of the square and fold it over the jam/nut mixture, then the other edge. Put the cookies over onto your greased sheet & make 4-5 cuts in one long edge of the cookie. Make sure to spread them slightly apart into an arched shape. Sprinkle the cookies with powdered sugar, and bake for 6 Minutes, or until light brown.
Makes 16 Paws.
